To date it has been 2 wins out of 5 for the Sligo Intermediate Ladies and they were playing Wexford at home on Sunday last in a must win game to help them reach a play-off stage.  Sligo lined out a strong 15 players to take on  fit and physically powerful Wexford.  Sligo had the upper hand for most of the game with a first half goal coming from Roisin Collery to settle the players.  At half time Sligo were 4 points up but Wexford got some vital scores to narrow the gap.  Karen Maloney took some all important points through-out the game and she was helped by Aine Gormley and Nicole Fowley who secured that all important win for Sligo with a final score of 1.8 to 0.8.  The final group game is against Tipperary on the 7th April at home at 2pm (venue to be confirmed).
